Tropical Fruit Smoothie

Hi Everyone,

Happy Smoothie Monday!  Today I am so glad that I have a day off from work. Woohoo!  Not sure what I have planned, but I can a sure you I’ll be cooking or baking today!  Since the weather has been crappy just about everywhere, I was in desperate need of some sunshine.  Since I don’t know the, how to make the sun come out dance, I figured I would make something that was bright and cheery.  So today I have for you my Topical Fruit Smoothie!
Tropical Fruit Smoothie
Oh this smoothie is so simple to make and so tasty. It’s thick, sweet, with a hint of coconut and pineapple. I used Trader Joe’s frozen tropical fruit to make the smoothie. I like the mix, it gives you big pieces of pineapple, strawberries, mango, and banana. It’s really good! Next time you’re at TJ’s, you should check it out.
Trader Joes Tropical Fruit Blend
I blended this bad boy with two other ingredients, Trader Joe’s unsweetened coconut milk, which you can get in the section with the almond and soy milk. It’s only 50 calories a cup. I also used a pinch of coconut extract to give it a tropical flair. I love extracts because they don’t contain hardly, if any calories and a little bit goes a long way.
Tropical Fruit Smoothie
For a little treat at the bottom of the glass I popped a maraschino cherry on top. I love those little cherries and I could so eat a whole jar of it, but I don’t, but I could.

  1. This smoothie is everything. It looks so sweet and refreshing!

  2. Smoothies are my favorite! I have been relying on them for a little sunshine too. But I’m starting to need the real thing. I also love TJs coconut milk. I used it in a smoothie yesterday and made oatmeal with it this morning. Tomorrow it will be that with granola.

  6. This looks delicious. I recently won a blender in a raffle so I’m going to go on a massive smoothie kick! I’m only sad that I’m going to have to work out my own frozen fruit. I wish I’d known about this recipe when I was living in America, and right opposite a Trader Joe’s. I miss their products.

    • I know I lived in california and then moved back to Buffalo for a year and they didn’t have a Trader Joe’s. It was so hard! I love being back in CA because i have a TJ’s right up the street. TJ’s was one of the reasons why we bought the house where we did! I needed one close by! :)
